Web Developer Extension for Google Chrome

Google Chrome provides a pretty decent set of developer tools out of the box. However, there is definite room for improvement. Web Developer is a new Chrome extension which tries to fill in the gaps.

Web Developer is the official port of the Web Developer extension for Firefox. It is implemented through a simple toolbar button which provides quick access to a wide array of developer tools. There are simply too many options to list them all over here. However, it includes most of the stuff you would expect from a standard web developer toolbar including various validation options, page resize and hidden elements viewer.

The extension is still a work in progress and is not yet as feature-rich as its Firefox counter part. Some essential features like CSS Editing will be implemented in the future, while others like “Disable JavaScript” simply can’t be implemented due to limitations in the Google Chrome API.

Firebug is still the king of the hill when it comes to web developer tools. However, the Web Developer extension works quite well in tandem with Google Chrome Developer tools and forms a powerful duo. It is a neat tool which a web developer should have in his repertoire.
